Classics Lecture: "Tragedy's Women as Subject and Object of the Gaze"
Location: Murray-Aikins Dining Hall: Banquet Rooms 1 & 2
Time: 5:30 PM
Speaker: Dr. Nancy Sorkin Rabinowitz
Film theory and in particular the feminist thinking coming from John Berger's "Ways of Seeing" and Laura Mulvey's work highlighted the ways in which male power is invested in the gaze; Mulvey argued that in mainstream cinema, woman is disempowered as the object of the gaze. In ancient ideology, proper women were not to be the object of the gaze. In this paper, Dr. Rabinowitz will give an overview of the role of women in tragedy asking whether possessing the gaze is necessarily empowering for women, and whether being the object of the gaze is necessarily disempowering. The talk will "look" at such characters as Medea, Clytemnestra, and Hecuba, as aggressive women who own the gaze, as well as Iphigenia (Oresteia, Iphigenia at Aulis), Polyxena (Hecuba), and Antigone, as sacrificial maidens
